Theory of Change

Welcome to our public consultation on the draft of our revised Theory of Change. We are pleased to share with you the updates that reflect our refreshed purpose and strategic aims, as we believe your input is crucial in shaping our intended impact.

In this revision, we have aligned each focus area identified in our core strategy with our impact pathways. These pathways clearly delineate the causal relationships between our strategic aims, inputs, activities, resultant outputs, intended outcomes, and overall impact. This comprehensive framework ultimately supports and fulfils our organisational purpose.

We explain how each element – from inputs to impact – interconnects to drive meaningful progress. Your feedback will be invaluable in refining this framework to ensure it accurately represents our aims and the steps we need to achieve them.

We invite you to engage in this dialogue, share your perspectives, and contribute to the continuous improvement of our certification scheme. Together, we can enhance the clarity and effectiveness of our approach, ensuring it resonates with and benefits all stakeholders involved. Thank you for your participation and commitment to our shared purpose.
